Stress is often associated with harmful behaviour one being smoking. Not only men but women are now becoming smokers too.

Incidental sampling technique was used with a total sample of 105 people (57 male smokers and 48 female smokers). Data was collected using an adapted version of the Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS 42). Hypothesis test using the Spearman correlation test technique showed a significance of r = 0.37 (p) 0.00 (<0.05) on the relationship between gender and stress which means that women have higher stress than men.
